Let me tell you how a dream dies.
- You have an hour glass before your face.
You watch each grain fall into place.
You think your dream will come at a steady pace.
But darling, that’s not the case.
2. At first you don’t notice that hairline crack.
And once you do, there’s no going back.
All you can do is watch the world go black
as the fragile glass holding your dream shatters.
3. You thought your dream would slowly trickle out.
Instead it spills out in a single spout.
You grab the grains of sand to push them back,
but they fall through your fingers like bits of ash.
4. In one moment your dream is gone. What to do?
You’ll likely laugh at it one day, pretend it didn’t matter
only to hide how much it did,
and that your dream will always live in you,
in the form of regret.
